      1580 - Paris, Apud Guilielmum Chaudiere, 1580; in-folio, XXXII-462 pp. + index, errata., Reliure moderne imitant une reliure à la hollandaise, plein vélin, les 10 premières pages ont les marges restaurées . Une superbe marque d'imprimeur avec, dans un médaillon, un diable ailé agitant la faux du temps, avec à ses côtés, un sablier. Complet des arbres généalogiques dont un dépliant. Ouvrage rare et bien complet de ses sept parties annoncées dans le titre en latin. L?auteur, né à Bar-le-Duc, s?efforce de prouver, à l?aide de documents faux ou altérés, que les princes lorrains descendaient en ligne directe de Charlemagne. Il fut déféré au Parlement, condamné, mis à la Bastille, son ?uvre lacérée, malgré le fait que l'auteur avait obtenu le privilège royal. Cependant, il fut remis en liberté, en 1583. Il est rare qu'un livre ait fait l'objet d'autant de controverses. De nombreux généalogistes ont démonté les thèses de François de Rosières, mais aucun de ces auteurs n'a précisé quelle partie du texte était fausse? Il est vrai que Rosières faisait remonter la famille de Lorraine, à Anténore. La personne la plus contestataire de Rosières n'était autre que le roi de France qui, à cette époque, était maitre de la Lorraine. Il chargea de nombreux généalogistes de réduire le travail de Rosières à néant et, par ailleurs, il fit rechercher les titres de noblesse des ducs de Lorraine qui furent trouvés à La Mothe et qui furent soustraits à tous les regards. Comme de Rosières était très estimé des ducs de Lorraine, il se retira dans la région. A sa mort, les chanoines de Toul, pour honorer sa mémoire, lui élevèrent un mausolée dans la cathédrale, qui était surmonté de sa statue et de sa généalogie personnelle. Rare et bon exemplaire.

        Picture scroll of an Imperial wedding procession.

      Probably Constantinople, ca. 1580-1590.. Gouache paintings raised in gilt on paper roll, mounted on cloth, 11 cm in height, total length 1.96 metres (divided into two parts of 390 and 1570 mm each), depicting an Ottoman wedding procession with captions in Italian. Matted, framed and glazed.. A unique and outstanding record of a 16th century Imperial wedding procession at the Ottoman court, nearly two metres in length. The scene is divided into several sequences: 1) Five groups of riders with musical instruments (trumpets, drums, and cymbals. 2) Two dignitaries carrying a 'nahil' (a traditional fertility symbol often made of flowers, paper and wax), followed by "Aga eunuchi della sposa". 3) "Aga che mena il cavallo della Sposa" (Aga leading the bride's horse). 4) The bride on horseback, inside a tent draped in gold and surrounded by four men (possibly Muslim clerics?). 5) "Donne che vano dietro alla novizza", wearing white niqabs. 6) A eunuch leading a large red covered wagon in which we can glimpse other veiled women. 7) "Altro eunuco, Aga cioe guarda Dame". 8) Several dignitaries, mounted and bearing arms. 9) The "paggi della sposa", bearing flowers. 10) Musicians: "trombetta e timpano che servono la sposa", followed by more eunuchs and riders. 11) An elder, bearded dignitary in a white turban and royal robes closes the procession, followed by a single rug-bearer. - For over a century after the fall of the city in 1453, the Venetian and Genoese ambassadors in Constantinople represented the only effective channel for the West to build trade relationships with the Ottoman Empire. A new generation of Genoese and Venetian nobles from the wealthy merchant families maintained commercial ties with the East by taking advantage of these political liaisons. To their eyes, the Turkish world with its customs and traditions, so very different from those of the Western world, would certainly appear worthy of being observed closely and depicted in all its detail. Here, a gifted amateur painter, very likely an educated Western commercial traveller, has recorded in scroll form an entire nuptial procession, crowded with elegant, sumptuously-dressed figures occupying various roles and offices. The Italian captions in a late 16th-century hand identify several characters and their functions. The entire scene revolves around the central figure of the bride, served by a group of eunuchs and accompanied by "paggi" (pages) and veiled bridesmaids. The bride is, in fact, invisible to the viewer, hidden behind the draperies of a tent on horseback. Very well visible, on the other hand, are the richly coloured garments worn by the mounted dignitaries accompanying the parade, all wearing their specific headdress, a distinguishing feature of their office within the Ottoman courtly society. The colourful scene gives evidence not only of the artist's talents for decoration and ornament, but also of his uncommon attention to ethnographic detail: clearly, the observer of this procession aimed to record truthfully the various figures he saw, individualizing them by their different features. The beards, moustaches, shoes, and headdresses in this scroll are certainly not drawn indiscriminately, but rather are a direct, faithful record of the participants in a foreign society's ritual, a world whose exotic charm continued to attract the Western traveller and made him preserve the Turkish interpretation of a familiar courtly event in this sweeping panorama. The wedding procession perfectly condenses the cross-section of Ottoman noble society and its protagonists in all their various functions at the end of the 16th century. Very similar processions are depicted in the Dryden Costume Album (Trinity College, Cambridge, MS R.14.23) and the Kassel University Library's Ms. hist 31 (p. 115), both of which are considerably shorter and folded in leporello style. Owing to similarities with the Dryden album, the Kassel manuscript, and others including an example in Jerusalem, the present scroll would be dated to ca. 1580-90, making this one of the earliest costume books with Italian labelling: while 17th century examples are not uncommon, few appear in the 1580s. - All these late 16th century books and drawings testify to the increased contact in this period between Europe and the Ottoman Empire and to the subsequent interest in Ottoman culture. While the European taste for the Orient could sometimes veer towards the fantastical, these manuscripts give evidence of genuine and sensitive intellectual enquiry. Images of the Ottoman Empire became fashionable souvenirs of Oriental travel from the 16th century onwards and would remain in vogue until the 19th century (we are indebted to Dr William Kynan-Wilson, Cambridge, for generously sharing his research on this topic). - Occasional chipping with slight loss to colours; remains of a collection label, but generally well-preserved.

        A natural history pattern book from the seventeenth century

      Frankfurt, 1580. Oblong booklet of 44 illustrated leaves measuring 204 x 183 mm., many being woodcut patterns with printed pedagogic captions in several languages (namely Latin, German, English and French); some loss (principally marginal) affecting approximately half the leaves, the whole book repaired and laid down in the eighteenth century; old vellum, worn and stained, recently rebacked by a competent binder. English schoolboys of the seventeenth-century. Intriguing and original natural history pattern book, being a composite of leaves from several early publications of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with very early handcolouring and a smattering of irreverent manuscript notations.This book of original hand painted woodcuts presents birds, beasts, insects and flowers compiled for use as an educational aid during the seventeenth-centur. It has several bold ownership inscriptions on the vellum covers including "William Park Anno. Dom 1660" and "Philip Pease his booke 1669". The hand colouring is charming and original and the book was clearly repaired during the eighteenth century, and during this process the plates were laid down. Much used by many hands, the inside of the vellum covers have been used by students to practise the spelling of difficult words including "Plantaganett". Other manuscript notations appear throughout the book, from mundane details such as "Ms. Wards over against the blew bord in German Street in St. James Fields" to more flamboyant statements (one plate of grubs is inscribed in a concise seventeenth century hand "You must not call thoes things raw cunts thats Bawday they are caterpillars").The woodcuts are principally sourced from a later sixteenth-century edition of Egenolff's Herbaum, arborum, fruticum...animalium (first published 1546), bound with leaves from another unidentified book of reptile and invertebrate designs of the early seventeenth century. In comprises 19 pages of animals (birds, reptiles and mammals), 22 pages of flowers, 9 pages of insects and a single leaf of frogs.Quite possibly unique, this is an idiosyncratic and appealing book, with much to be discovered about its history.

      Geneva: Eustache Vignon, 1580. Hardcover. Very good. [16],213 pp. In Latin. 19th-century plain paper-backed marbled boards. 19th-century German booksellers label in front pastedown. Small early inscription, crossed out in early ink, in title page, not affecting text, occasional early underlining and marginal notes. Two-inch vertical crease at head of title leaf, with half-inch closed tear at edge (tear not affecting text), faint dampstaining in first 24 leaves. Very good. Early Latin edition, after the first edition, in German, of 1569 and the first Latin edition of 1570. Known in English as ?"Of Ghostes and Spirites Walking by Nyght, and of Strange Noyses, Crackes, and Sundry Forewarnings, Whiche Commonly Happen Before the Death of Menne, Great Slaughters, & Alterations of Kyngdomes,?" from the 1572 English translation, this work is one of the most important demonological works of the Reformation era, profoundly influential in Elizabethan literature. The author, Ludwig Lavater (1527-1886), was a Zwinglian Swiss theologian and minister based in Zurich. In the 16th and 17th-century Protestant world, new questions had surfaced regarding the nature of ghostly apparitions—particularly their origins. In the Catholic understanding, ghosts were generally thought to be spirits of the dead on leave from Purgatory. With their rejection of the doctrine of Purgatory, Protestant philosophers and theologians were compelled to search for new answers. One (fairly unpopular) position was taken by Reginald Scot in his DISCOURSE UPON DEVILS AND SPIRITS, appended to his 1584 work, DISCOVERIE OF WITCHCRAFT, in which he argued that because the age of miracles had ceased long ago apparitions must be no more than the products of human imagination or trickery. The dominant view in Protestant theology (if still not quite the popular mind), however, came to be what Lavater expressed here in DE SPECTRIS. Lavater argued that, while many apparitions may be indeed be products of false perception, ample evidence of real supernatural visitations had existed from biblical and classical antiquity to the present day. He concluded, however, that these phenomena are not the spirits of the dead but in fact agents of Hell (and perhaps occasionally Heaven) that will sometimes take human spiritual form. He relates examples of these phenomena throughout the work, together with a taxonomy of less-human specters such as Lamiae, Larvae, and Lemures and a variety of mythical creatures. In his introduction to the 1929 Oxford edition of GHOSTES AND SPIRITES (edited with May Yardley), J. Dover Wilson demonstrates the clear influence of Lavater?'s views—and possibly of his book, directly—on Shakespeare in the shaping of the dialogues surrounding the ghost of Hamlet?'s father. In TAMMUZ PAN AND CHIRST : NOTES ON A TYPICAL CASE OF MYTH-TRANSFERENCE AND DEVELOPMENT (Chicago, 1912), Wilfred H. Schoff discusses the influence of Lavater?'s ?"strange compilation of wonder stories?" on the Elizabethans and traces the path of the ?"Dead Pan?" story in English literature from DE SPECTRIS through Spencer, Milton, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Caillet 6237 ("curieux et rare"). Dorbon-Ainé 2509 (first edition). Graesse, pp. 81, 134. Rosenthal 1885. Thorndike VI, pp. 530-32.

        LA GALLERIA DELLE MAPPE GEOGRAFICHE IN VATICANO

      FRANCO COSIMO PANINI; TESTI DI A. CHIGGIATO, R. FERRI, C. FRANZONI, L. GAMBI, P. LIVERANI, M. MILANESI, A. PINELLI, F. PRONTERA, P. SERENO; FOTOGRAFIE DI A. ANGELI, D. PIVATO; VOLUME PRIMO: ATLANTE FOTOGRAFICO PP. 612, 795 ILLUSTRAZIONI A COLORI; VOLUME SECONDO: SAGGI E SCHEDE PP. 511, 120 ILLUSTRAZIONI IN BIANCO E NERO. VOLUME TERZO: CARTE 40 CARTE GEOGRAFICHE IN COFANETTO; INDICI TOPONOMASTICI. Lunga 120 metri, la Galleria delle Carte geografiche è la più vasta rappresentazione geografica mai realizzata, con una ricchezza di toponimi straordinaria, impreziosita da piante e prospetti di città e animata da grandiose scene di battaglia. Una decorazione straordinaria, proposta per la prima volta in tutti i suoi particolari. La decorazione delle pareti di edifici monumentali con rappresentazioni geografiche è una pratica artistica che trovò una nuova fortuna nella seconda metà del XVI secolo. La Galleria delle Carte geografiche in Vaticano, voluta da papa Gregorio XIII nel 1580, è l?esempio più esteso di questo tipo di raffigurazione pittorica. Sono infatti ben 40 le carte geografiche affrescate sulle pareti del corridoio che dai Musei Vaticani porta alla Cappella Sistina, realizzate sui disegni del coordinatore scientifico dell?impresa, Egnazio Danti, matematico e cartografo già attivo alla corte dei Medici e a Bologna. Fu invece l?umanista tedesco Luca Holstenio, cinquant?anni dopo, a curare il restauro di molti degli affreschi, forte anche dei progressi compiuti nel campo della cartografia, che in quegli anni aveva sviluppato tecniche di misurazione più accurate. Le carte, che raffigurano l?intera penisola italiana con le isole maggiori e minori, raggiungono così un livello di dettaglio spesso sorprendente, soprattutto quando ritraggono aree come lo stato pontificio, la Liguria o la Toscana, in cui Danti aveva compiuto rilievi cartografici. I dipinti si presentano all?osservatore come un lungo succedersi di mari e fiumi, valli e pianure, boschi e strade, accompagnati da targhe, piante e vedute di città racchiuse in cartigli svolazzanti ed episodi storici, mitologici o aneddotici che corredano le località principali o i mari, unendo alla ricerca di rigore scientifico il gusto per il bello e il sorprendente. Sulla volta, una serie di cinquantuno affreschi raffigura episodi miracolosi o edificanti legati alle località sottostanti, mentre un?altra serie di dipinti a monocromo riporta episodi dell?Antico Testamento. Il libro, del quale fa parte un cofanetto con le riproduzioni, su fogli sciolti, delle singole carte geografiche, documenta, analizza e commenta l?intero patrimonio artistico della Galleria. Le fotografie dell?Atlante riproducono, con attenzione ai più piccoli particolari, tutte le carte geografiche e gli affreschi del soffitto, oltre alle sculture che decorano il corridoio. I saggi del volume dei Testi, che contiene le schede che commentano le fotografie, studiano in dettaglio genesi e significati della Galleria, a partire dal saggio di Antonio Pinelli che inquadra nel contesto storico e politico l?impresa voluta da papa Gregorio XIII, oggetto anche di un anonimo poemetto coevo in latino, l?Ambulatio gregoriana, qui studiato da Rolando Ferri. La figura di Egnazio Danti e il suo lavoro nella Galleria costituiscono invece l?oggetto del saggio di Lucio Gambi, seguito dall?intervento di Marica Milanesi che affronta nello specifico le ragioni del ciclo delle carte. Il programma iconografico della volta e il suo rapporto con le carte sottostanti sono analizzati nel secondo contributo di Antonio Pinelli, mentre Paola Sereno traccia una storia della fortuna del ciclo pittorico nel corso dei secoli e Claudio Franzoni ricostruisce la storia dei restauri che l?hanno interessato.

        Die wasser kunst, so durch pomp werk das wasser auß der tieffe zeucht. Wie sie im Leberthal gebrauchet wirdt. (Titel rechts oben in Kartusche)

      O. O., ca. 1580.. Kupferstich eines unbekannten Künstlers. Alt auf Karton montiert. 28,5 x 36,3 cm. Sehr detaillierte Darstellung des Berg- und Hüttenwesens im elsässischen Lebertal (Vallée de la Lièpvrette) bei Markirch (Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines). Das zahlreiche Personen und Gerätschaften zeigende Bild mit folgender Legende: A. Truhenlüffer. B. Haspelzicher. C. Aertzheuwer. D. Brandsetzen. E. Scheider. E. Klauber. G. Zerfetzen. H. Bucher. I.

T. Schmelzöfen. V. Rösten. X. Rütengeher. ---- "Ein weiteres, aus dem letzten Viertel des 16. Jahrhunderts stammendes Beispiel für diese exakte, detailreiche und umfassende Darstellungsweise findet sich auch in einem Einzelblatt, das den Bergbau im elsässischen Lebertal schildert. Der Betrachter des Kupferstichs wird vom Künstler an drei Stellen in das Berginnere hineingeführt. Am unteren Bildrand erkennt man Knappen, die das Gestein durch Feuersetzen zermürben, daneben arbeiten Bergleute mit Schlägel und Eisen bzw. Keilen. Offenes Geleucht erhellt das Dunkel, die Streckenförderung erfolgt mit Trögen. An einem Gesenk wird gehaspelt, Knappen fahren durch das Mundloch mit Holzausbau ein. Im Berg findet man eine große Wasserkunst mit einem oberschlächtig angetriebenen Rad, das über Gestängepumpen die Wasserhaltung bewegt. Die übrigen Bildszenen spielen über Tage, wobei die Reihenfolge der Arbeitsvorgänge von der Förderung des Rohhaufwerks bis hin zum Schmelzen und Raffinieren bzw. zum Abtransport des Endproduktes aus kompositorischen Gründen an unterschiedlichen Stellen angeordnet worden ist. Der Kupferstich schildert eine vollständige Abfolge der Vorgänge im Berg und in der Hütte, wobei der Künstler genaue Kenntnisse nicht nur von den Einzelvorgängen, sondern auch von den alltäglichen Begleiterscheinungen zeigt: Er weiß von den Streitigkeiten, die beim Verkauf der Roherze entstehen, er kennt die Aufseher, ihm war das Land um Markirch bekannt". Damit steht der unbekannte Künstler in der Tradition des Hausbuchmeisters, des Hans Hesse, des Schöpfers des Kuttenberger Kanzionales und der Bergbücher, in denen ähnlich umfassend das Montanwesen geschildert wird." (zitiert aus: Dietmar Guderian (Hrsg.), Technik und Kunst. Düsseldorf, 1994. Bd. VII, SS. 223f.). - Bis zum Plattenrand beschnitten, mit kleinen Randschäden auf Bütten aufgezogen und auf Karton montiert. Oben links etwas berieben. Verso fleckig. Insgesamt recht gutes und sauberes Exemplar, das für mich nur mit einem Standort in der Graphischen Sammlung Stuttgart nachweisbar ist!

        [engraved title:] Pia desideria emblematis elegiis & affectibus SS. Patrum. illustrata ... Antwerp, Hendrik Aertssens I, 1624 (repeated in colophon). Small 8vo (15.5 x 9.5 cm). With letterpress half-title, richly engraved allegorical title-page, full-page engraved coat of arms of the dedicatee, Pope Urban VIII, full-page engraved introductory emblem, numbered "0", all on integral leaves, and 45 numbered engraved emblem plates by Boëtius à Bolswert. Half tanned sheepskin (ca. 1850), gold- and blind-tooled spine.

      De Backer & Sommervogel IV, col. 513; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) III, Bolswert 145-192; Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 345; Porteman, Emblematic exhibitions, p. 17, fig. 6; Praz, pp. 143 ff.; STCV 6826501 (4 copies). First edition, in the original Latin, of the most popular spiritual love emblem book ever published, illustrated with the beautiful emblematic designs of the great baroque artist Boetius Adamsz. van Bolswert (ca. 1580-1633). Herman Hugo (1588-1629), a Jesuit priest who lived in Antwerp and elsewhere in the southern Low Countries, made the genre popular throughout Europe with his Pia desideria and especially its beautiful emblems by Van Bolswert. Its emblems, mixing heart-warming scenes of tenderness with dire warnings to sinners, even inspired the Protestant Jan Luyken's Jesus en de Ziel. Though the use of the Latin language would have demanded a fairly well-educated reader, it was still the language of the Catholic Church and the book clearly spoke to the common people. For this reason, the emblems depict people (often represented by putti) in daily life.With early owner's inscriptions on title-page mostly erased and a 17th-century interlinear inscription between the first lines of the dedication, and a 20th-century bookplate of Jos van der Steen. With a small rust hole in 1 leaf and an occasional, usually marginal brown stain, but still in very good condition. A seminal emblematic work mixing heart-warming scenes with dire warnings, both from daily life.

        Sefer HaHASSIDIM Hachassidim ha-Hassidim Hahasidim (Book of the Pious)

Rough translation of Hebrew inscription on verso of title page: The anniversary of the death of my father, of blessed memory Over these do I weep and shed tears and cannot be consoled over the death of my father who left this world and was buried on Monday, the 4th day in the month of Kislev in the year [5]533 [= 30 November 1772] [In the same handwriting but different ink:] The anniversary of the death of my mother and teacher. You died and were buried on Thursday, the 21st day of Adar [?] [5]532 [= 25 February 1772]. OCLC: Libraries worldwide that own item: 6. References: Steinschneider, Cat. Bodl.,; 5701 (2); Wiener, Kohel. Mos., 4311; Roest, p. 616. Many of the passages in Sepher HaChassidim are homiletic and exegetic, explaining the philosophical or mystical meanings of Biblical verses and Talmudic sayings. Nonetheless, it is primarily a masterwork of ethical instruction, enjoining how to resist temptation and avoid sin; how to dress, speak, pray and work; how to choose a wife and select companions; how to harmonise the necessities of existence with the requirements of religious life; how to choose a righteous teacher, and many other subjects. No other Hebrew work of ethics devotes such close attention to details, rendering it an important historical source for the study of everyday Jewish life in medieval Germany. For an extensive treatment of Ashkenazic Pietism, see I Marucs, Piety and Society: The Jewish Pietists of Medieval Germany (1981). See also H. Soloveitcheck, "Three Themes in Sefer Hasidim," AJS Review I (1976) pages 311-357. ¿Sefer Hasidim,¿ is truly representative of the teachings of the German pietists (Hadisei Ashkenaz). H. Soloveitchick, "Piety, Pietism and Germany Pietism: Sefer Hasidim I and the Influence of Hasidei Ashkenaz." JQR, XCII, numbers 3-4 )2002), pages 455-493. Major work in the field of ethics, produced by the Jews of medieval Germany. It comprises the ethical teachings of the Hasidei Ashkenaz movement in the 12th and early 13th centuries. Many of the passages in Sefer Hasidim are homiletic and exegetic in nature, explaining the ethical, and sometimes the philosophical or mystical, meanings of biblical verses or talmudic sayings. Most of the passages, however, discuss only ethics, and do so in direct connection with everyday life. Sefer Hasidim is the prime example of pragmatic and realistic ethical teachings in Jewish ethical literature; it takes into account the special characteristic of every case, the psychology of the person discussed, the historical and economic situation, and the person's special relationship to other people. This approach renders Sefer Hasidim the most important historical source for the study of everyday Jewish life in medieval Germany; it throws light especially on economic and religious relations of Jews with gentiles. The book has some descriptions of actual incidents, clarifying the situation in Germany during and after the disasters brought by the crusaders on Jews in Germany and France. Later Jewish ethical works influenced by Sefer Hasidim retained its strict and uncompromising adherence not only to the commandments, but to the entire body of religious ethics. The book instructs the pious man how to resist temptation and avoid any situation which may lead to sin. It teaches how to dress, to speak, to pray, to work, and to sleep; how to choose a wife and to select friends; how to harmonize between the necessities of existence and the requirements of religious life; which city is suitable for a pious person to live in and which is not; the right relationship between teacher and pupil; how to choose a righteous teacher; in what fields one may have commercial contact with gentiles etc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio A fascinating Sammelband of three historical works relating to the Civil Wars in France at the end of the 16th-century, here preserved in a very attractive, strictly contemporary binding (dated 1590). ORBIS CHRISTIANI STATUS. First (?) Edition, bound third in the present Sammelband, which contains frequent and apparently unrecorded references to Elizabeth I, and also to America, i.a. the description of the Portuguese and Spanish possessions in the New World (p. 132 / 158), the West and East Indies (p. 138), an account of the Spanish Armada off the coast of Scotland and Ireland (pp. 143-4), etc. An extraordinary passage on p. 132 informs the reader that the vast lands of "America" (sic) and the West Indies were conquered "with appalling cruelty" (sic!) and were subjugated by authority of the Pope himself (sic!). The Orbis Christiani Status gives a strictly contemporary account of the rebellion of the Duc de Guise against royal authority, his assassination in 1588, and the eventual triumph of Henri IV. As per Hugh M. Richmond's 'Shakespeare's Navarre': "When Henri IV won his famous victories in 1589-1590 he became a folk-hero of the English, with their ineradicable taste for romance on horseback. There was every reason for fashionable young playwrights to exploit this popularity in the early 1590's, and Shakespeare was no exception. Love's Labour's Lost is thus in part an attempt to define the origins of a contemporary hero, and it develops motifs and character types which reappear in several of its author's later works. We are now able to judge what drew the young and ambitious Shakespeare to this material, and why it proved so seminal to his awareness. In the first place Love's Labour's Lost is a work of imaginative journalism exploiting contemporary political fashion" (SOURCE: Hugh M. Richmond, "Shakespeare's Navarre" in: The Huntington Library Quarterly, Vol. 42, No. 3. Summer, 1979, pp. 193-216). Adams O-256. Not in Moeckli, Les livres imprimes a Geneve de 1550 a 1600. Conrad Memmius' JEHOVA VINDEX: "The author of this somewhat rare opuscule, published just after the accession of Henry IV, quotes with approval the sentiment of Tertullian that the monarch is second only to God. There is no third power that is free from Subjection to him, or has authority over kings themselves. The writer is opposing the pretensions of Sixtus V; but in his zeal to support royalty, he ignores the superiority of the states-general which was asserted by Hotman. He even goes to the length of justifying the King's predecessor in his treacherous murder of the Duke of Guise and his brother, the cardinal ('Jehova Vindex, sive de rebus Gallicis,' Bremae, 1590). Whether the author, who calls himself Jacobus Francus, was a Frenchman or a German, he fully represented the sentiment of the Huguenots, and was rewarded by the papal authorities by honorable mention in the Index Librorum Prohibitorum" (SOURCE: Henry Martyn Baird, "Hotman and the 'Franco-Gallia'" in: American Historical Review, vol. 1, No. 4 [1896], pp. 629-630, notes). First published in 1589, the present copy belongs to the second edition. VD16 F-2252. Not in Moeckli, Les livres imprimes a Geneve de 1550 a 1600. Jean de Serres' five-part COMMENTARIORUM DE STATU RELIGIO ET REIPUBLICAE IN REGNO GALLIAE was the primary source for plot materials for William Heminges' "The Fatal Contract: A French Tragedy," written 1638/9, first acted in 1640, and first printed in 1653. This extraordinary Caroline play has been regarded as one of the most extreme of the revenge tragedies or "tragedies of blood" -- more graphic even than Titus Andronicus. Heminges almost certainly used the 1607 English translation entitled: "The General Inventory of the History of France" (SOURCE: Virginia Mason, Performing Blackness on English Stages, 1500-1800, pp. 121-2). The five parts of the commentaries were published separately, years apart, the first being compiled by Pierre de la Place. Ours is the First Edition of Part V, complete in itself, which relates signal events during the reign of Henri III from 1574-1576. Serres continued to work on the History until the end of his life, in 1596, at which time he had completed twelve books. Adams L-197.

        Sophoclis tragoedi VII. In quibus prter multa menda sublata, carminum omnium ratio hactenus obscurior, nunc apertior proditur: opera Gulielmi Canteri Vltraiectini`

      Antuerpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1580. Text in Greek. 431, [17] pp. Printer's device on title-page. 1 vols. 16mo. 18th-century tan polished calf, gilt spine, leather label (slightly chipped); head slightly rubbed, upper joint cracked but holding, some light waterstainining to lower margin of last few leaves. Early gift inscriptions of front endpapers (see below). Sophocles to Plantin to Eton to the Blackstones One of the landmark 16th-century editions of the great Greek tragedian, published by press of Christopher Plantin in Antwerp, and edited with notes by the young Dutch scholar Willian Canter, whose earlier edition of Euripides "established a new era" (Samdys) in the printing of the Greek tragic poets. It was Canter, in his earlier edition of Euripides, who first established the arrangement of the choral odes in enumerated lines of Strophe and Antistrophe - a practice continued here and in his subsequent Aeschylus and which continues today. Canter's edition of Sophocles, with his corrections to the text of Turnebus presented in his Latin Notes (pp. 429-436), remained in use for 200 years (cf. Jebb in his Introduction to his edition of 1887)This particular copy has a fascinating provenance, with historic associations from ETON. The flyleaf bears the ink inscription:"Wm. Cole / E dono J. Foster, eruditissimi Scholae Etonensis Archididascali. 1772" [Given to W. COLE by JOHN FOSTER, learned Headmaster of Eton College. 1772."On the facing endpaper, in later hand, is the ink inscription: "Henricus Lee / E Dono M. Cole, uxoris Gulielmio Cole, Prebendarii Westmensteriensii Cathedrae. 1812." [Given to HENRY LEE by MARY COLE, wife of WILLIAM COLE, Prebendary of Westmenster Cathedral. 1812."]JOHN FOSTER (1731-1774), classical scholar, was Headmaster at Eton from 1765 to 1773. According to the DNB, "Foster was not successful in his administration of the school, 'his government was defective, his authority insufficient,'" Foster retired from Eton in July 0f 1773, "in hope of recruiting his health, which had been sadly shattered by his efforts to cope with the difficulties of his headship."WILLIAM COLE (1753-1806), also a classical scholar with close ties to Eton. According to the DNB, "In 1766 he was admitted at Eton and in 1773 was made scholar of King's College, Cambridge ... .In 1777 he returned [from Cambridge to Eton as a master, but, having ruptured a blood-vessel while an undergraduate, found himself not strong enough for the post, and resigned it in 1780." Under the patronage of the Duke of Marlborough his career advanced and he was eventually appointed prebendary of Westminster by the Archbishop of Canterbury. "In 1795 he married MARY [BLACKSTONE], the second daughter of Sir William Blackstone, but left no issue ... " - DNBMARY BLACKSTONE COLE (ca. 1773 - 2nd daughter of WILLIAM BLACKSTONE (1723-1780)HENRY LEE (1765 - 1838) - husband of PHILIPPA BLACKSTONE (b. ca. 1775), 3rd daughter of WILLIAM BLACKSTONE.

      Geneva, Leiden and Bremen: E. Vignon & Bernhardus Petrus, 1580-1590. Together 3 works in one volume. 8vo. (ORBIS): 174 pp., 2 blank ff. (COMMENTARIORUM): 8 ff., 208 pp. (JEHOVA VIDEX): 2 parts in one volume. 12 ff., 34 ff. Contemporary half pigskin blind-tooled, upper compartment with the monogram of the first owner "M.M.H." in the lower the date "1590," boards painted black, sprinkled edges (front endleaf loosening). IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio A fascinating Sammelband of three historical works relating to the Civil Wars in France at the end of the 16th-century, here preserved in a very attractive, strictly contemporary binding (dated 1590). ORBIS CHRISTIANI STATUS. First (?) Edition, bound third in the present Sammelband, which contains frequent and apparently unrecorded references to Elizabeth I, and also to America, i.a. the description of the Portuguese and Spanish possessions in the New World (p. 132 / 158), the West and East Indies (p. 138), an account of the Spanish Armada off the coast of Scotland and Ireland (pp. 143-4), etc. An extraordinary passage on p. 132 informs the reader that the vast lands of "America" (sic) and the West Indies were conquered "with appalling cruelty" (sic!) and were subjugated by authority of the Pope himself (sic!). The Orbis Christiani Status gives a strictly contemporary account of the rebellion of the Duc de Guise against royal authority, his assassination in 1588, and the eventual triumph of Henri IV. As per Hugh M. Richmond's 'Shakespeare's Navarre': "When Henri IV won his famous victories in 1589-1590 he became a folk-hero of the English, with their ineradicable taste for romance on horseback.
